pergola concrete base
Good afternoon folks. I would like to add a pergola to my garden. I couldn't decide how I would put the vertical wood to the ground. My neighbor built a deck and he put an 8 inch diameter concrete tube and put cement. After the concrete hardened, he just put the 6x6 on top of the concrete tube.
I was thinking of doing the same. I am thinking of building about 15 ft x 11 ft pergola. I am worried that if I put the foundation wood on the hole, it might rot eventually.
How is it properly done?
